    Toe overlap

    Is toe over lap an issue with smaller 29er bikes or is it something that is taken into consideration during the geometry/build process? Just asking because I might be in the market soon and would most likely end up on a small (I’m 5’ 7”).

    I haven’t had a chance to test ride any as I am now just beginning to take an interest in this and the local shops are still holding out on the 29er stuff or at least don’t have any in stock at the moment.

    I was also wondering why most 29er builders use steeper angles on 29ers vs. the current trend of 26” trail bikes that use slacker angles like 65-69 degrees. My thoughts are that a slacker angle would kick the front wheel further away from the crank arm at the 3 o’clock position.
